■Research summary
Thinking the dynamics between science, technology, society and culture through science fiction.

 My research focuses on the dynamics between science and science fiction in contemporary Japan from the perspective of cultural studies. Science and technology management has become a highly political issue, with scientific discourse permeating the public sphere and public opinion influencing scientific and technological practice. I have been primarily looking at Japanese SF (literature, films, manga) and how it addresses contemporary cultural and social issues in the context of a technologically-driven globalization.

I am also looking into Japanese society from the perspective of science fiction. Even though it is through “newer” and more popular media, especially manga and anime, that Japanese SF has met with international success, there is also a very rich legacy of prose science fiction. It is an exciting means to examine how a society conceives of rapid technological changes and their possible consequences or implications.
